Local post-punk/dance crew The New Sound of Numbers has been working on its new LP Invisible Magnetic for the better part of this year; back in March, we gave you a taste of the title track. Now, finally, the album is prepped for mass consumption, and the group will celebrate with a release show at Flicker Theatre & Bar tonight.
Today, Flagpole is beyond excited to premiere an exclusive new tune from the record, which is out on local imprint Cloud Recordings. Below, stream "Complete," a joyous, psychedelic dance workout and Invisible Magnetic's second track.
Elf Power celebrates the release of its 12th studio album, Sunlight on the Moon, with a show this Saturday at The World Famous. (Read our Q&A with frontman Andrew Rieger.) At the show, folks can grab advance copies of the record, which is officially out Oct. 1 via Orange Twin. The band has been teasing the album for several weeks, leaking two singles, the ebullient title track and the fuzzed-out "A Grey Cloth Covering My Face."
Today, Flagpole is excited to premiere an exclusive third track from the album. "Lift the Shell" is an insistent, invigorating trip of a song. It's also the album's most experimental track, with all its (literal) bells and whistles, though a luminescent pop core shines through.
Stream the song after the jump.
Local songwriter Don Chambers has spent much time exploring the "whiskey-soaked bootstomps" of a certain rowdy brand of Southern folk music, but A Sudden Loss of Elevation, Chambers' upcoming solo LP, finds him quieting down. "These are solo, acoustic, diminutive, romantic, natural recordings," says Chambers, "nothing too tricky, though a few songs did have some help from Thayer Sarrano and my wife Sanni Baumgaertner."
Since its inception, Jared Collins' k i d s project has become less of an enigma, solidifying into something sleek and sure. This doesn't mean it's any less exciting; with each release—and there are lots of them—the group, which finally features a steady cast of charaters thanks to Velocirapture's unforeseen but brilliant assignment as Collins' backing band, continues to hone its sound in unexpected ways.
